We typically recommend two staff for large scale activaions, and one staff for smaller private events.
OrcaVue products require 120v/240v. The motor draws 5amps at peak.
To capture and deliver beautiful 360 videos to your event guests safely, be sure to bring additional lighting, stanchions, and a great internet connection. You can also accessorize with branding, a television with 360 video content uploaded to it, props, and confetti!
Useful links for some of those accessories:
- LED ring light – This has temperature control, brightness control, a large inside diameter, a 1/4″-20 threaded insert for mounting, and you can charge your iPad/iPhone from the USB port on the back.
- Light batteries – Two of these power the ring light (any NP-F970 type battery will work).
- LED panel lights – for ambient and background lighting in dark venues.
- Stanchions – For crowd control we typically bring 6 to each event which is almost always enough.
Setting up just the OrcaVue platform is easy! It can take as little as 5 minutes.
However when we service events, we often give ourselves at least 2 hours to deal with event logistics, load-in, additional branding, lighting, ensuring we have a great internet connection, etc.
This depends heavily on your location, experience, and event type. Photo booth operators generally set the price based upon a minimum number of hours with a fee for each additional hour. Weddings and corporate events typically have more guests as well as larger budgets and might be priced higher than than a small backyard birthday celebration. Pricing for an OrcaVue 360 booth is generally higher than that for other types of booths.
OrcaVue products come with a 12-month manufacturer’s warranty.
